Since I can’t obsess over the best filter in Japan, as I don’t know how to gather information, I started wondering about the Brita water filter. Will be using water for a vacuum hose suck, and I was wondering how many times I should filter the water. The water here is bad, and bought a Brita water filter the first time I looked at the Mason jar I was drinking from. As a side note, don’t let the 5th month you are in a foreign country be the first time you look at what you are drinking. I know it’s anal, but since I don’t have anything to do on this gloomy Tuesday, I though I would see what you guys thought.
